12:41 PM ET 12.01 | American women's soccer stars Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan have received a major honor after a year in which they led the Team USA soccer team to a third straight gold medal. Wambach and Morgan have been nominated to be named FIFA Player of the Year. "What a tremendous honor for all of us," Wambach said. "And even more so to be recognized with Alex, someone who compliments me in almost every way on the field." If either of the American stars win the award, they will be the first American to bring home the award since Mia Hamm back in 2002. The two combined for 50 international goals this year and led Team USA to an undefeated record of 13-0-2.
